THE INEFFABLE PRAYER. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
THE INEFFABLE PRAYER. i. Poets, ye would gain fair guerdon ; Ye would grasp the prize of glory, If ye learned the plaintive burden Of sad nature's silent story, It ye solved its latent spell. Ah, but did j'e learn it well? 11. Nature speaks a cryptic tongue, Murmured mid that solitude Whence your poet's song is sung. Doth her mj'stery elude Her elected priests, her prayer Rising vain to realms of air? 111. Vainly, for, from nature's altar When your mystic chants arise, Oft, methinks, your accents falter; Oft ye taint her sacrifice. Have ye still your task disdained, And your natal vows profaned? IV. Poets! poets! have 3e vainly Lost the secret ye should learn? Have ye basely; aye insanely Taught your souls the truth to spurn ? Guiding soul by pride's volition, Have ye marred your sacred mission? V. Ye have felt the odic throbbing Of the spring-grove; the despair Of the autumn forest sobbing From vast depths its formless prayer. Ye have felt with subtle feeling. Could ye scorn this m...
THE COLLEGE GRADUATE AS A BUSINESS MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
THE COLLEGE GRADUATE AS A BUSINESS MAN. JOUBERT says: " L'experience de beaucoup d'opinions donne a Pesprit beaucoup de flexibility et Paffermit dans celles qu'il croit les meilleures." A modern English writer expresses himself very similarly perhaps after Joubert: "Theories which bring into connection with each other modes of thought and feeling * * * * have a great stimulus for the intellect, and are almost always worth understanding." Now I have a theory on a matter of living interest to us all. There are many among us, I am sure, who have other and better views on the same subject. Perhaps those gentlemen will interchange opinions, and give us the benefit of their wider experience. We not unfrequently hear it said, that college life and college education unfit a young man for active business; that the jrroper sphere of a college graduate is the drawing-room, the ball-room, the library, —any place except the counting-house; that, though he may be a good musician or linguist, he i...
THE ART OF ORATORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
THE ART OF ORATORY. OR, VTORY is the art of instructing, pleasing and persuading an audience by means of effective and eloquent speech. Its object is to touch the sympathies and passions and move the minds of the people, by converting them to the purposes and convictions of the orator. Tfie pulpit, the bar, the political platform, and the concert hall define the sphere of its practice. Oratory is not the result of a study of prescribed rules nor is it a science to be acquired by application of formulae. No rhetorician is inclined to argue that the master-pieces of the art owe their excellence to the observance of written laws. Rhetoric is the effect, not the cause of the creations of the masters. It is maintained, however, that attention given to precepts laid down in books produces no results. The diction and style may be embellished, the voice cultivated, the memory strengthened, and self-possession secured by pursuing the counsel of the rhetorician. But mediocrity is the highest ...
THE SMALL BOY IN ANCIENT ATHENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
THE SMALL BOY IN ANCIENT ATHENS. 11. His EDUCATION. (COMPETITION ESSAY.) ARISTOTLE remarked that education is to boys what a rattle is to infants—a means of keeping them quiet and out of mischief. But we should be in error, if we thought the Greeks had no higher ideas of learning than this which the old Stagyrite in a pessimistic moment has expressed. For, although the Athenian state did not support public schools, and made no provision for anything approaching a national system of education, still its careful legislation in the matter proves that it recognized education in all its best and noblest respects. Nor should it be supposed either, because there were no free public schools, that therefore education was confined to the wealthy, and thought little of by people of ordinary means. The schoolmaster was very much abroad in ancient Athens, and pedagogy? like everything else salable, is subject to the economic principle, that the price of a commodity comes down according to the gr...
THE ASCENSION [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
THE ASCENSION The glowing path of that chaste primal ray, That whilom flashed on earth's unsullied face, Passed sorrowfully near death's coiling place; And, since the dread eclipse of Eden's day, 'Neath sombrous pall life's path had wound its way, Sin-mystery obscuring suns of grace. As on a tablet blank, the recreant race Hath heavenward gazed, where Justice frowning lay, Till once a path was cleft to heaven's gate A path made golden by a passing rare World-wide. Unto a realm confederate It ope'd the way for virgin choirs of prayer. And showed life's terminus a crowned state, Its glorious perspective ending there. — M. 'g6.
TWO ANTHOLOGIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
TWO ANTHOLOGIES. (COMPETITION ESSAY.) " O Nightingale, it were a story nice, That love should not depend on charity; And if that virtue contrar' be to vice, Then love must be a virtue, as thinks me."-— Dunbar. The publication in 1567, by Richard Tottel, of the " Songes and Sonnettes, by Henry Howard," and others, first indicated that the old order of literary inability, which had held England from the time Chaucer died, was passing away. Much verse, and some good poetry, had been written between the two periods, but there is no poet of any great moment, excepting Skelton, and his title will be disputed by many; Lydgate is interesting at times, but he hardly deserves the name of poet, and Gower, I must confess, I have found tedious and exasperating. Macaulay says, in his essay on Milton: "In a rude state of society, men are children with a greater variety of ideas. It is therefore in such a state of society that we may expect to find the poetical temperament in its height of perfecti...
Boston College Stylus. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
Boston College Stylus. PUBLISHED MONTHLY. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION : One dollar in advance, post-paid. Single copies, fifteen cents. ADVERTISING RATES : Address T. F. MURPHY, Advertising Agent, Boston College. The STYLUS is published by the students of Boston College as an aid to their literary improvement. As the paper is, for the most part, devoted to matters which may not prove interesting to the general reader, it must look for its support, chiefly to the students and graduates and their friends. These, we trust, will need no exhortation to extend to us their patronage. Address, BOSTON COLLEGE STYLUS, 761 Harrison Ave., Boston, Mass. EDITORS: EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, JAMES A. DORSEY, '94 THOMAS J.

EDITORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
EDITORIAL. WITH varying degrees of disappointment and surprise we have noted the marked lack of general interest in the recent mass meetings, those gatherings where the latent heat of college spirit is more easily measured. We are certain that all do not sufficiently appreciate their importance. Generally, their object is to discuss and devise means of furthering some enterprise of our college life. We have long recognised the benefits arising from a judicious attention to athletics; and vet a contagious indifference is shown to these meetings bv those who are expected to set the pace, instead of being the laggards. One of the two recent calls for a general assembly of the students was totally ignored, and the other was responded to in such a manner as to make the absence of many members of the Collegiate classes painfully conspicuous. We do not attribute this apparent indifference to lack of interest so much as to lack of order in conducting these periodic conventicles. Many, no do...
DOMI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
DOMI. " By Lamb and Bacon I am oft regaled," The learned Boston maid declared. " And I," said she, who from Chicago hailed, " On ham and eggs have often fared." EDWARD J. DOIIERTY, '95, has invented a device for turning the signs on street cars from the inside of the cars. It has secured the approval of several railway presidents and may be adopted on the street cars in the large cities. FATHER MULRY, S.J., who was Professor of Physics in Boston College for a number of years, a former Director of the STYLUS, has been assigned to mission work in Jamaica. Mr. Henry T. Casten and Mr. A. Elder Mullan, who, after several years of successful professorship in the College, left us last year, much to our regret, to begin their study, of Theology, will defend at the next public disputation in Woodstock, a series of Theses. Mr. Casten's Theses were from the treatise on Grace, and Mr. Mullan's from the treatise on the Eucharist. THE PUBLIC LIBRARY seems to be a rendezvous for many B. C. men. Ha...
ALUMNI. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
ALUMNI. As the end of the scholastic year approaches the annual dinner of the Alumni Association becomes a topic of conversation. The pleasant memories of last year's gathering still linger with us, and fill with promise the outlook for the future. W e are told that the gentlemen who will have charge of the coming meeting, so encouraged were they by the latest success, intend to make it excel even that of last year in sociability and literary excellence. No doubt they are equal to the occasion. The preliminary meeting of the Executive Committee will soon be held for the purpose of making the necessary arrangements, the complete details of which we hope to be able to publish in our next number. Apropos of this, we desire to make a correction; the address of Mr. John D. Drum, the secretary of the association, is 573 (not 28) Massachusetts Ave. Rev. Francis D. Maley, '89, spent Easter week visiting relatives and friends in this city. Father Frank is in first class health. He brought go...
CLASS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
CLASS NEWS. THE Philosophers began Natural Theology on the 2nd. The Class had a lesson in experimental photography on April 9. They themselves were the victims. The scene is laid in the class-room. Through mistake last month, John J. Burke was announced as objectoi against the Theses from Onlology, instead of Francis X. Crawford. THE majority of the Rhetoricians have signified their intention of joining the Agassiz Association, and it is likely that some action will be taken during the coming month. A Class meeting of Higher Grammar was held on March 30. The principal business transacted concerned the ball team. Early in the season the class decided to get uniforms for the class team, and took measures to this effect. But now, realizing the position of the College team, the members of the class decided by a unanimous vote, to give up the idea of purchasing suits, and to present the sum of twenty-five dollars to the manager of the College team. In return we are to be allowed the use ...
SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
SOCIETIES. THE FULTON DEBATING SOCIETY will hold its fifth annual prize debate on May 151bIn previous years a special meeting of the Society was held on the night ol'the debate, and the regular business transacted, of which the debate was a part, in the presence of the audience. The audience, however, have not, as a general thing, shown much interest in these proceedings, and it has happened that before the meeting had adjourned, fully half of them had left the hall. The society decided to do away with this uninteresting ceremony, and to devote the evening to the prize contest alone. It is expected, however, that the College Orchestra will assist at the affair. The question chosen is: "Resolved, that an educational qualification, as a prerequisite for voting, should be established throughout the L nited States.' The interest in the appointment of the debaters was un- usually lively. It was evident that four good debaters coidd be chosen. But to choose four from sixteen candidates, a...
ATHENAEUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
ATHENAEUM. THE first of the public meetings, which the Athenamm has voted to hold, will take place 011 the afternoon of April 22nd. The famous trial scene from "The Merchant of Venice" will be attempted by these, many of whose names are already familiar to the students : the Duke will be impersonated by J. P. Mahar '94; Antonio, John J. Carey '95; Bassanio, W. J. Hassan '96; Salarino, J. E. Welch, '95; Solanio, Francis E. Byrnes prep.; Gratiano, J. L. Sullivan '97; Portia, Thomas J. Golding; and Shvlock, by Patrick S. Cunniff of the preparatory class. After long consideration and much discussion it has been decided to present " Richard the Second," as the commencement play of '94. M. J. Scanlon, '95, has been elected Toast-master of the annual banquet in place of Francis H. Houston, '94, who resigned. The spread will occur on the evening of May 22nd in the college refectory. " King Robert of Sicily," which was postponed on account of an accident to one of the leading characters will...
ATHLETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
ATHLETICS. THE nine men who will represent the College on the ball field this year, were selected with difficulty from the number of candidates who have been trying for the honor of a place. After carefully weighing the relative merits of individual players — such qualities as were brought out on the hard floor, and within the narrow confines of 'the gymnasium — the management has decided on the following and their respective positions: Sweeney, Prep., catcher; Crawford, '94, captain; and Hart, '96, pitcher; Kearnes, '97, first base; White, 94, second base; Murphy, Prep., third base; Farrell, '97, short stop ; Ulrich, '97, left field ; Smith, '94, centre, and Brady, '97, right. Smith and Brady may be relied upon to catch whenever the occasion requires. There have been few dates arranged, owing probably to the many set-hacks base-ball has unfortunately received this year. The games with Technology and Boston University bid fair to be the most interesting of those thus far arranged. I...
BOOK NOTICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
BOOK NOTICES. THE AMERICAN CITIZEN: by Charles F. Dole, D. C. Heath &amp; Co., Publishers", 1893. Mr. Dole's book is probably the most successful effort to make the study of Americian citizenship interesting and popular that has yet been made. The work, while especially fit for upper grade schools is, both in style and treatment —the one admirably simple, the other accurate and thorough—excellently adapted for the great citizen body generally. A deeper appreciation of the dignity of the American citizen and a more intelligent and patriotic exercise of his functions will result in proportion to the extent with which such books as this are circulated. A note accompanying the book informs us that the Catholic Reading Union has selected this work as its text book in the particular branch of which it treats. This distinction coming from so capable and judicious a source makes any further commendation 51" the work unnecessary.
EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
EXCHANGES. THE Niagara Index has an article on " Style in Writing" that is disappointing in its brevity. The author's ideas and his manner of presenting them are excellent. He evidently could treat his subject, much written and discoursed upon as it is, with rare success; but, just when amplification is needed, he brings his essay abruptly to an end. But why does the exchange man accuse us of misquotation when he must recognize how entirely without force the charge is ? "Young" as we confess ourselves to be, " verdant" perhaps, too, we will presume to counsel our patriarchal mentor to this effect: Accept, as gracefully as may comport with the natural testiness of old age, a just criticism, given without asperity or abuse, and with no motive but to correct. The Index man preaches the gospel of avoiding " inaccuracy and extravagance of expression." Thus the aged hero practises it. Because we criticized some verses of his journal, he says we soared " into the lofty realms of poesy." Th...
HALF AN HOUR AT A BOOK STORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Stylus — 1 April 1894
HALF AN HOUR AT A BOOK STORE. READER, have you ever had the fortune of spending a short time at one of our city book stalls! Not one of those high-toned, higher-priced establishments, where one meets only the cultured and book-learned, but one of our common, every-day sort of stores, with its modest front and antiquated appearance, which the common, non-cultured class of people, patronize; one of those curious places where, in a space of six feet, you can get anything from a nursery tale to the most formidable looking bible; anything from the most trashy novel of the day to the deepest treatise on philosophy or theology. Where, mingled together in a conglomerated mass, like the raisins in the historic plum-pudding, you may find, new books, old books, books that " have seen better days; " in fine, a place wherein, like the brave six hundred, there are : " Books ranged to right of you, Books ranged to left of you, Books ranged in front of you, Dog-eared and worn. And what a variety! W...
